3M Privacy Products
Featuring microlouver technology pioneered, designed and optimized by 3M to block side views so you see your screen clearly while people on either side see a vivid golden shield.
Privacy is the best policy
These days, screens are everywhere. And so are visual hackers. With the increase of mobile workers, open workspaces, and the migration of data to the cloud, computer screens can display private information virtually anywhere.
An unprotected screen can expose sensitive and private information, trade secrets and business plans. And the reality is, a visual hacker may only need one piece of valuable information to unlock a large-scale data breach
A leader in screen privacy and protection
For more than 30 years, 3M has been advancing optical technology to deliver the gold standard in visual privacy. We remain a trusted global leader today—continuing to improve our technology,
Display and device technology continues to advance. So do we. Our privacy filters work simply and beautifully on most of today’s laptops to help protect your screens, and help keep the information on them private.
Behind the simplicity of our products is a powerful combination of optical science and sheer ingenuity you’ve come to expect from 3M. Rest assured, our products are inspected for quality defects, ensuring that you get authentic 3M Privacy Filters, with science applied to life.
Visual hacking: when information is visually captured without permission. But we’ve got you covered.
Gold standard in privacy
3M Gold Privacy Filters are perfectly suited for most of today’s high-resolution screens. Maintain optical clarity on your laptop screen while projecting a vivid golden shield to side views.
How privacy filters work
3M Privacy Filters block side views outside the 60 degree viewing angle, while providing a crisp, clear view to those directly in front of the screen.
A single microlouver is about as thin as a single strand of hair. There are thousands of microlouvers within one 3M Privacy Filter—all virtually undetectable by the human eye.
3M Gold Privacy Filters for Laptops attach with optically clear adhesive strips or easily removable slide mount tabs.
Find the right privacy filter for your screen
Step 1: Determine your screen type
Does your device have a raised bezel or a flat front glass screen?
Raised bezel: Screen with a raised frame around the edges.
Flat front glass: Screen with edge-to-edge glass without a raised frame.
Step 2: Measure your screen
For a raised bezel screen, measure the height (h) and width (w) of the screen's viewable area within the bezel.
For a flat front glass screen, measure the height (h) and width (w) of the entire glass display.
Step 3: Find your filter
Use the measurements to select the right sized filter for your device from the products listed below.
Best fit tip: If you don't see a filter that matches your measurements, select a filter that is larger yet closest to your measurements.

- Very blurry if you aren't in a very well lit atmosphere. It hurt my eyes after a few minutes
- Slightly curved or bowed. You can't stick it flush with the screen. So depending on which side you have on, either the upper/lower portions will be further away from the screen (and more hazy), or the middle part.
- Only comes with tabs (no tape)
- Hard to remove from the screen if you have a bezel (can't grab onto the thing!)
- Clearly the newer one. It has taken complaints from the older black screens and better engineered this one.
- Has a gold and a black side. Both options!
- Gold is easier to see through (not blurry like the black one)
- Not curved, but flat so it is easier to be flush with the screen.
- Has a little cutout tab at the top so it is far easier to remove
- Has both double sided sticky tape and tabs, for whichever option you prefer. According to the box, the sticky tape can be replaced for free when it is no longer sticky.
Oddly, I think this review section has both black and gold in the same section. Pay close attention to which one the person bought who is making the reviews.
I'm on my second only because I forgot the first one somewhere (pitfall of removing it to collaborate with a coworker). The second package didn't include the removable mounting option I had in the first--just the one-time use mounting strips. The removable option is handy when collaborating in a conference room.
The gold color gets positive comments.
It does show finger prints badly, as well as starts to get marks from they keys when the lid is closed. I keep a microfiber cloth on the keyboard when I close it to stop the marking and to use when handling the screen.
All jokes aside, my fellow passengers (seated next to me) cannot see what is on my screen unless they lean over into my personal space. And I'm not about to have that. And at almost any angle (other than looking at the screen head-on), it becomes very difficult to view the screen. All one sees is goooold.
I appreciate this 3M privacy filter so much, that I bought it's 14 inch sibling as well.
The only issues I have are 1) slight delamination in one corner of the filter, 2) the system 3M has for attaching the filter to my screen.
Issue 1: For me, the delamination was solved easily by dripping a bit of super glue in between the layers (that were coming apart) and squeezing together for about 5 seconds. At least for me, there was no loss of clarity in that tiny section of the privacy filter.
Issue 2: In my opinion, the system 3M provides for attaching the privacy filter to the screen needs to be improved. The tabs they provide come over the screen slightly. While it does not impede my work, initially it was annoying until I got used to it. Now I don't notice it.
A possible solution for my 2nd issue above could be the following - full disclosure, I have not tried this - I could order a size up and then trim the filter so it fits over the screen and onto my laptop's bezel. And then I could just use clear scotch tape to attach the edge of the privacy filter to the bezel and not the side of the screen. This way no tape (or tabs) would be over any part of the screen.
This is another great product from 3M. In my experience, I found that it pays to pay a little bit more and go with 3M. I have purchased all sorts of products from this brand over the years, and for whatever reason, in my experience every single product was more effective at what it's supposed to do then competitor brands. I'm a fan.
As to this 3M, NOT-GOLD screen: I looked at angles from the left, the right, above, with dark and bright screens, with white and dark backgrounds on the screen. IT'S NOT GOLD. It's NOT. There is the tiniest bit of irridescence to the DARK CHARCOAL GRAY color if you wiggle it. B.f.d. It's NOT gold...it's dark charcoal gray....just like the DARK GRAY privacy screens you can buy from other companies instead of 3M for half the price.
P.S.: The 3M package did absolutely, positively say that a GOLD screen filter was enclosed.
Top reviews from other countries
I do like the fact it is reversible (Black / Gold) and comes with permanent and non permanent mounting options.
This privacy screen works fantastically at doing just that. The angles are great! People literally have to invade your personal space and come up behind you to see your screen.
It's super easy to install and remove as needed and works well as an anti-glare screen too.
If you have a micro-manager who is always looking over your shoulder this is ideal! and if asked tell them it's just an anti-glare screen, they can't stop you from using it ;).
Best thing I've ever bought for the office!
Fast delivery and product came in great condition. Though it isn't cheap, it makes the product even better because few people have them or even know they exist.
This filter does not reduce glares as proclaimed, the opposite is true - I get more glares and reflections on my screen with this filter attached.
And if you are expecting this filter will help you to keep your screen private, such as on a plane or train... Forget it, person next to you will still have a great view of your display.
